Clinton Calls on China to Probe Google Hack

google_clintonChina has denied involvement in the recent cyber attacks against Google, but U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would like the Chinese government to investigate the incidents anyway.

“Google’s review of its business operations in China has attracted a great deal of interest,” Clinton said during a speech on Internet freedom this morning at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “We look to Chinese authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of the cyber intrusions that led Google to make this announcement. We also look for that investigation and its results to be transparent.”

Clinton’s remarks come as Google (GOOG) threatens to shut down its search operations in China after repeated attacks on its internal network, which appear to have originated in the country.

“In an interconnected world, an attack on one nation’s networks can be an attack on all,” Clinton said. “By reinforcing that message, we can create norms of behavior among states and encourage respect for the global networked commons.”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
